These color-blocked chairs are the perfect pop for farmhouse decor! I painted the colorful dining room chairs to pair with our kitchen table.
If there was a prize for being the slowest project finisher in the Universe, I would win it. Hands down. This colorful dining room chairs project is no exception. But it’s finally done! And I’m in love.
I was actually pretty nervous about color blocking the legs because I’m not one to really take risks with color, but after I painted the chairs all white I knew that I had to do something or it would look bland whenever we got around to painting the kitchen cabinets. And man, stepping out of my comfort zone feels pretty good!
The legs are like the perfect Robin’s Egg blue, I wish I could remember the name of the paint but I threw the can away last weekend. *bad blogger* All I remember is that the color is by Olympic, but we had it color-matched with Behr paint. I usually use Olympic paint, but on that particular day the paint guy at Lowe’s was being extremely rude and treating me like I was a dumb @$$, so I went to Home Depot instead. I’ve had issues with that guy at Lowe’s before, so now I just go to Home Depot to avoid him. I’m really mature like that.
Anyway, back to drooling over the chairs…
I used my HomeRight Finish Max sprayer to paint the bottoms of the chairs too. I slipped trash bags over the tops and seats to keep those white and taped everything up with some Frog Tape. The Frog Tape came in my swag bag at Haven. I’ve never used painter’s tape that good! No lie. And the best part is, no blue paint got on the white parts of the chairs!
I also found these cool chair pads for the bottoms so they don’t scratch up the floors anymore. We tried using the little round felt pads. But they didn’t work because the legs are angled. These are rounded so they are all smooth on the floor. And they slide super easily.
The best part of finishing these chairs is we can sit at the table again!
